Nutty Cracker Delights

Comment on this recipe

These treats are very easy to make and are delicious at any time. Both kids and adults love them and it is very hard to just eat one.

Ingredients

42 club crackers (2-1/2 x 1 inch) (one sleeve)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup slivered almonds

Instructions

Place crackers in a single layer on a foil-lined 15x10-inch baking pan. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add sugar and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for two minutes. Remove from the heat, add vanilla. Pour evenly over crackers and then sprinkle with nuts. Bake 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Immediately remove from the pan, cutting between crackers if necessary, and cool on racks. Store in an airtight container. Makes 3-1/2 dozen.
